Men’s London Fashion Week Trends
London Fashion Week is all about practically looking into the future and preparing your wardrobe for the season ahead. Straight from the runways of London, we’ve curated our favourite avant-garde styles for AW19, as influenced by the latest trends.
“Over the years, inspired by history, intricacy, urban environments and popular culture, we have provided collections that have resonated with men; in turn, discovering that despite using much of the same material, what men want is intrinsically different to what women want.”- Stephen Webster, Goldstruck
Re-intro of the leather look
The re-intro of the leather was a key trend across the London Fashion Week Men’s Shows as seen by the likes of John Lawrence Sullivan, and Bobby Abley showing leather will be one to stick around for seasons to come. Originally matched for the clichéd screen rebels, a bike gang or rock star, leather has shown us it can be suited for all who dare to be bold. Compliment the leather look with the edge cutting England Made Me Switch Blade Pendant, available in White Mother of Pearl, Black Mother of Pearl, Black Diamonds, and White Diamonds. Wear the pendant open or closed, dependant on how fearless you’re feeling

We’ve seen London, the hub of fashion focusing on gender fluidity, especially on mirks (skirts tailored for men). Fixating to the term 'genderless style', pair the style with the Thames For Love Nor Money Ring suited for both male and female. Designed with the roots of London in mind, spin the side of the ring to either sport Piccadilly Circus’s finest Eros set on black ceramic, or showcase the Bad Penny on the gold face.
The co-designer Blondey McCoy is known for his ‘Granddad, chic and skater’ and recently winning Vogue Hommes 2018 Stylish Icon Of The Year says "Whenever I see it in motion, I hear the eerie intro to “Father Figure”.
